Open Acadia is Acadia University's initiative to offer flexible programming and learning opportunities to Acadia students and the greater community. Our programming goes beyond the scope of the conventional university experience to offer education to youths, seniors, and working professionals.
Aspiring scientists from across the Maritimes joined us on Friday, May 2nd for the 29th Annual Huggins High School Science Seminar.
The Huggins seminar offers a unique opportunity to learn from—and interact with—real scientists who work on interesting projects on an everyday basis.
This year's seminar included four keynotes on the topics of drinking water, scientific bias, geological expeditions, and electron microscopy. And, our fun, contentious professorial showdown returned as the Desert Island Debate, and the day rounded with an always fun chemistry show.
Visit our Huggins page for more information.
Acadia's Summer Music Academies return this year with Concert Band (July 6-12) and Strings Festival (July 14-20). Summer Music Academies are primarily designed for youths age 10-23, but musicians of any age are welcome to participate.
In either academy experience, you'll enjoy a week of immersive musical learning on the Acadia University campus. You'll rapidly improve your skills with the guidance of phenomenally talented music instructors from across Canada. Students can stay on-campus in a comfortable Acadia residence, or join us as a day student.
Register today or contact us with your questions. See you this summer!
